star this property answer text I have not raised the status of the two legislators with the Chinese Government. A senior FCO official met the Chinese Ambassador to the UK on 8 November to discuss the importance of the Legislative Council to Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy. The British Chargé d'Affaires in Beijing also discussed these issues with the Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs on 7 November. When I visited China from 14 – 17 August, I discussed with the Chinese Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs the importance of the maintenance of 'One Country, Two Systems'. The British Government will continue to monitor, and to report to the House on the situation in Hong Kong. more like this

star this property answer text Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST) is an online guidance service, published on Gov.UK alongside HMRC’s more detailed guidance on employment status. HMRC developed CEST to help all engagers and individuals to determine employment status and decide whether the off-payroll rules apply.<p> </p>HMRC’s CEST service has been rigorously tested against known case law and settled cases, and HMRC stand by the result if it is used in accordance with their guidance.<p> </p>HMRC continue to enhance CEST in response to stakeholders’ concerns. Improvements will be made to language and presentation and include guidance to ensure questions are clearly understood. Changes are being tested with tax specialists and users of the service to ensure they meet individuals’ and businesses’ needs. more like this

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>The UK Living Wage (sometimes referred to as the ‘Real Living Wage’) and the London Living Wage, are both voluntary rates set by the Living Wage Foundation. These are not statutory figures which relate to the government policy in this area, and so are not legally binding on employers. The statutory minimum rates are the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage. For comparison, the National Living Wage is currently £7.83 per hour, and increased by 4.4% in April 2018. The increases in the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage have produced increases for over 2 million workers this year, across the economy, and increased pay by £2,000 for those on the minimum rate, since these statutory arrangements were introduced. All MoJ employees are paid at least the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage. 395 staff employed by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ HQ, HMCTS, LAA, OPD and CICA) and 24 by HMPPS work inside Greater London are paid at a rate below the London Living Wage of £10.20 per hour. 7471 staff employed by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ HQ, HMCTS, LAA, OPD and CICA) and 6374 by HMPPS work outside Greater London are paid at a rate below the London Living Wage of £10.20 per hour.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>
